Cardio and Diet

Irene was pretty much a flop around here, which was a good thing. Some had it worse than others.
Anyway, I was thinking about cardio work and weight loss and after trainng hundreds of folks for weight loss, it all comes down Cardio burns some calories, but if you are "Krispy Kreaming it up" and doing the cardio, it wont do a damn thing. So do the cardio for your health-heart health, brain health, blood pressure, but dont think that the more cardio that you do, the more weight you will lose. Your diet has to be in order first. less calories, frequent meals, high protein...everyone knows it, right?? And the frequent meals are there bcause if you let too much time go by without eating, many people binge eat. So it regulates that in those of us witth some type of "happiness equals 12 doughnuts syndrome."

All About Being a Lifer

What's a Lifer? Someone who isn't in to something for just a day, a month, a's for life. Whether its training or your family or your doesn't matter. You work at it, you build on it, you see the big picture . You don't miss workouts because it means something to you. You are like a Shakespearean actor- no matter what is going on in your life, you block it out when it's time to train. You walk into the weight room and all else disappears. Worry about it later.
